So… the Thunder played a basketball game tonight.
At least I think that was them. Still not sure, actually.
This game was just one big SMH. From tipoff there was no energy, no urgency, no intensity and on top of it all, the Thunder played absolutely abysmal basketball. Sometimes you can get away with lacking energy because you’re making some open shots and taking care of the ball. The Thunder did neither of those two things. All the miserable things that happened in the fourth quarter against the Jazz carried over and then some.
The only real positive to take from this, and this is a stretch, was that Jeremy Lamb looked pretty good in garbage time. I can’t stress how horrifically horrible the Thunder played. It was the kind of 48-minute performance that makes you consider things like vacuuming your living room, cleaning the garage or putting up Christmas lights two months early just so that you don’t have to see it anymore.
So let me summarize all of that again: The Thunder were super terrible tonight. There aren’t any excuses, there aren’t any justifications. Keep Reading…
